The First Year


I can't say "I never had a lady friend

__for this long before"

But I can say "she's never been

__my best friend before"

Thee amount of hours spent on the 'phone

Has passed the 12 months

__like rain from the sky

I've enjoyed you so much

That it doesn't even fee that long

It doesn't matter, the time zone


It only matters that we do


And we've been doing that


My love for you

__has seen me thru ev'rything

Gotten me over my ex

Gotten me to forget about

__my so-called friend

____who won't be my friend anymore

Gotten me to stop obsessing on

__women I know I can't have

Enough to wait for the right one

Even though I may still write about them

__until she comes

You have seen me happy

You have seen me sad

But no matter what

We're still best friends

You're all that I have
